Official: 2011 Bmw 135i Coupe and Convertible with DCT

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Bmw revealed today the 2011 135i Coupe and Convertible models, which continue the EfficientDynamics philosophy together with the company's latest twin-scroll turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six cylinder engine.

What is really interesting about these models is that both will feature feature the 7-speed Double-Clutch Transmission (DCT) as an option.

The new six-cylinder (N55 designation) delivers an impressive 300 hp at 5,800 rpm and 300 lb-ft of torque available from 1,200-5,000 rpm.

The brand new engine delivers the same level of performance as the current 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinde but with the help of twin-scroll technology and the integration of VALVETRONIC throttle-less intake technology, the engine promises better throttle response and even more fuel efficiency.

Due to the VALVETRONIC, VANOS, and the twin-scroll turbocharger housing, also the torque is reached 100rpm earlier than with the previous engine. 

If you choose the optional 7-speed Double-Clutch Transmission you will now find out that the shift paddles now feature dedicated paddles for upshifting and down shifting (the driver pulls the right paddle for upshifts and the left for down shifts).

Harman Kardon Surround Sound System replaces HiFi System Professional as the upgrade sound system option. The 2011 BMW 135i Coupe and Convertible will gon on sale in Spring 2010 as a 2011 model.
